Would you consider Legacy an idle game?

If not, what genre would it fit in?

    An idle game.

    It's more of an idle managing game, I think. While a large part of the game is waiting, like most idle games, it also puts a lot of focus on managing your civilization, such as picking the right jobs for individual workers or deciding whether the unhappiness generated by child labor is worth the extra workers. It, in it's current state, is kinda like if you were to take simcity, combine it with cookie clicker, and add in the "building a civilization" concept on top. It might become a bit of a strategy game in the future as well, depending on how in depth things like other tribes end up being.

    I don't consider it as an idle game. I don't spend time "idling" and let the game do what it is supposed to do, I spend my time rearranging workers and buildings, and the small moments when I could be waiting to have more research points, I just go faster.

    To me, it is more like a small (small for now) strategy game like sim city, caesar or civilization, where things evolve by themselves, but you have to manage things at the same time.

    Now let's see how it evolves...

    Civilization game.

    I would consider this an incremental game, although it's not an idle game or a clicker game, all of which are generally treated as synonyms. Another fitting category is probably real-time strategy.

    I never spent much time idling on it personally, actually I once did an experiment by leaving them all alone for awhile (after i had built the ascension thing, but before ascending) and while my civilisation was ALIVE, it was absolute chaos. (~10K overall population, 2K clothes and entirely not enough food)
    So I'd say no, it's not an idle game, it needs much more micromanagement than idlers.
    why are you here? why am I here? were we created in the same way that we created them?
